Description:

Texas Monthly has an immediate opening for a managing editor to oversee its daily and monthly editorial operations. The position will have oversight over calendars, budgets, deadlines, and the collective mechanisms that define an editorial workflow, as well as a crackerjack team of copyeditors and fact checkers. The managing editor reports to and works closely with the editor in chief, both to run the magazine and brand day-to-day, and to institute needed changes. The M.E. also works closely with the digital managing editor to ensure that editorial content across all platforms is produced with efficiency, integrity, accuracy, and deftness. Grace and collegiality under pressure are paramount requirements for this job, as are an affinity for storytelling and a fondness for all things Texas.
